As the national drink of Brazil, the Caipirinha is quite popular with our South American friends. But as more and more quality cachaƧas become available in the United States, the cocktail is becoming more and more common on restaurant and bar menus across the country. The drinkā€™s simple mix of cachaƧa, lime juice and sugar is simple to make and easily customizable. You can muddle in-season fruit into the cocktail or use an aged cachaƧa for a richer, warmer flavor. And just when you thought the libation couldnā€™t get any more refreshing, we took the whole thing and dumped it into a blender with ice to create the ultimate summer sipper: the Frozen Caipirinha.

This crowd-pleasing cocktail is easy to batch for a crowd, and it doesnā€™t require any fancy syrups or expensive ingredients to get it right. If you choose a quality cachaƧa (we love Leblon and Avua Prata) and use fresh lime juice, the Frozen Caipirinha tastes like summer in a glass. We suggest sipping it poolside, serving it at your next backyard barbecue or simply whipping up a glassful at the end of a long, hot day.
